      Hi there,

      This is a agood and controversial question….in a medical view during the dying process the body’s systems shut down. Some people argue that during the dying process people can see the a light at the end of the tunnel. The tunnel vision is because the blood supply is cut to the brain then people expierence fainting and narrow vision, followed by blackness.

      What we know is that the cells start to die because the blood (who transport the oxigen to our cells) is not dynamic anymore, this is because the circulation stop. The body lose little by little energy and the metabolic process necesary for living are stop.

      Clinical death occurs when the person’s heartbeat, breathing and circulation stop. Four to six minutes later, biological death occurs. That’s when brain cells begin to die from lack of oxygen, and resuscitation is impossible. In the end it is a natural process for all living being…all we go to the same place!

      I think Joaquin has given a great answer on the medical side of death. Whether our ‘souls’ go off to another place? I am not sure, and I guess we won’t ever know for sure until that day comes. But it is nice to think if we lead a good life we end up in a nice place afterwards 🙂
